Appointed senator by the Galician parliament last year, Alberto Núñez Figo has yet to make the direct leap from the Senate to the head of government, with a majority at his disposal in the Chamber of Deputies. But it left behind a council in which the Popular Party regained the absolute majority, turning the tables on its defeat in 2019 with 84 seats against 92 from the Socialist Workers Party. In the Catalan part, the majority system doubled the disaster of Escera, which moved from 11 to 3 seats, while Juntes retained one of the three seats it had, and the Socialists gave up twenty, before the wave of the People’s Party, which rose to nearly forty.
Yesterday the direct electoral part was voted on in this room, which is as beneficial to parties as it is not beneficial to society. There are 208 seats, added to those set by independent parliaments, by one per million inhabitants or parts, giving about 60. With a 95% vote, the People’s Party voted for the 120 senators, who join the 23, according to Europa Press, appointed independently. In this mechanism there is a certain complexity, because some societies call it in conjunction with their legislation. Others, with Curtis Gen.
The representative was worth about 3,500 votes yesterday in La Gomera, and in Madrid more than 800,000 votes.
Since this is an open list election, in which the four candidates with the most votes in each province of the peninsula get the seats, and with a special system for the islands, Ceuta and Melilla, the government does not submit results in the vote.

In any case, the result of the People’s Party should not differ much from 33% in Congress.
It helped him make 58% of the Senate vulnerable, thanks to a majority system that favors first power in each province. To give existence to minorities, limited voting is used. Thus, parties can field only three candidates. For this reason, in the vast majority of the territory, although not in Catalonia, the People’s Party won 3 seats and the PSOE one.
This distribution model, which is classic and which fell into crisis, especially in November 2019, worked like clockwork in nine provinces of Castilla y León and in five provinces of Castilla-La Mancha. In the first the result was PP 27-PSOE 9 and in the second PP 15-PSOE 5. Three to one in each constituency.
In Andalusia, with its eight provinces, there was also a crushing popular victory, but it was not 24-8, because PSOE won in Seville and there was a draw in Huelva, leaving the final score at 21-11.
In La Gomera, the Al Jazeera party ASG won its seat again by just under 3,500 votes. On the other hand, more than 800,000 were needed in Madrid and in Barcelona, with a low participation, almost half a million.
